Yes, if the engine also heats up at stop lights then I'd definitely suspect the radiator cooling fans. Easy way to tell is open the hood with the engine running and carefully see if the fans are running. If not, there's your A/C problem. If the fans are running the A/C compressor may be tired and not compressing as efficiently as it should. At idle the compressor may not have enough "OOMPH" to compress the freon to make it cool. But at higher engine RPMs the compressor spins faster and compresses better. HTH. -Jim
